“When your storage needs keep changing, I change with them.”
Kerry Johnson Warehouse & Operations Manager
Getting bananas on your shelves at the peak of ripeness has gotten, well, bananas. These days, logistics and produce storage needs change by the hour. You don’t have the time or resources to move produce to your own ripening warehouse. You just need the freshest produce possible, ready to eat the instant your customers want it.
Rather than constantly reacting to changes, Kerry Johnson and his team have gotten ahead of them by enhancing their system to instantly adapt. Not only are they even more responsive than before COVID-19, but they’re now handling many of the processes that, until recently, were controlled by retailer distribution centers. They can even accommodate storage temperature changes in the warehouse so that ripening techniques can be easily accelerated or slowed according to demand.
The result looks exactly like things used to look — produce delivered on time, at the peak of freshness. And right now, that says a lot.
